Oh goodness, it is finally 2015! Another lovely year of books has begun and it’s time to talk about the upcoming reading marathon. Because this year, I shall focus on books more than I have ever done so far.
Like I wrote in my post yesterday, 2014 was a nice year of reading, but this one shall be a lot better. Now that I look at my 2015 bookshelf, I can see I have planned to finish all of the books I’ve started reading ages ago, but also many new ones will be read. Right now, there are 23 books in the shelf and it looks to me that it’s not too much for me.
I will be continuing the awesome book series The Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel, maybe I can even finish it this year! Another series I am trying to read on is the one of Septimus Heap which I actually wanted to completely abandon last year. Going on, there is Harry Potter (3 books left to read), A Song of Ice and Fire, The Iron Druid Chronicles, The Lord of the Rings and a few more. Looks like it will be a year of continuing and starting book series.
Well, my goal this year will be to read at least 20 books, but I really hope I can, for once, complete a whole bookshelf of a year. As I am still in school, I believe there will be a lot compulsory literature which will add some 23 books in this year’s bookshelf and maybe add up to 30 books.
I am a bit afraid of this year, too. Because I promised to myself that I don’t leave any books unfinished anymore so I will have to continue reading some books I truly hate and which I should have actually read last year. The total of these books is 5, so that’s not too bad. But it still gives me shivers.
So… What do I wish from this new year? First, lots of new books. I love buying “real” books as I don’t like reading e-books or even worse… borrow them from a library. I have nothing against them, but I really want to actually own the books I read and not have to worry about taking them back to the library or anything. I am a “collector”, I assume.
What else do I wish? That I finally read Lord of the Rings. I have promised to read that for year and I still haven’t done that. Which is a shame. But 2015 will be a year of fixing my mistakes and doing a lot of new, even better stuff.
One thing I don’t like is that this year (as I don’t read a book a day like some reviewers) I will not be able to write a review a day, but will have to make posts weekly… or even monthly, if it really goes that bad. I truly hope it will not be that bad, though.
What do you wish from this new year? Are you challenging yourself with anything? Are you looking to do something new?
